JCB 8065 RTS Excavator

September 28, 2010

Although listed as part of JCB's mini excavator product offering, the new 8065 RTS reduced-tail-swing model weighs in at more than 14,500 pounds, close to 1,000 pounds beyond the industry standard for mini excavators. Introduced to North America at the ICUEE trade show, the JCB 8065 RTS crawler excavator is powered by a Tier-3 Isuzu engine generating 54.3 horsepower, and boasts maximum dig depth of 14 feet 3 inches and dump height of 14 feet. As with the 8055 model introduced earlier, the 8065's large, stylish cab is isolated from the swing frame, decreasing both noise and vibration for the operator.
